No wine clubs ship to Utah, due to state laws. Utah has a rapidly changing set of laws regarding alcohol, including changes in 2019 and proposals in 2021. In 2019, higher alcohol beer sales became permitted in grocery and convenience stores. You can purchase alcohol in-person at restaurants, liquor stores, bars, taverns, etc. but you cannot ship wine to Utah.
An important note for travelers is that only residents of Utah can bring alcohol into the state, as only the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (DABC) can legally import alcohol into the state. Don’t accidentally get in hot water with highway patrol if you are headed to UT on vacation!
Can You Order Wine Online in Utah?
Currently, unfortunately it is not possible to order wine online in Utah. In February 2021, a bill put to the Utah Legislature proposes allowing customers to order online for in-store pickup. That would allow online ordering, but likely not the type that you are wondering about.
Special orders of full case purchases ARE possible, though. Complete the paperwork found here, to purchase by the case from a producer or authorized distributor of US wines, or imported products available from a listed US importer. Note that it can take upwards of 45 days for orders to arrive at your local Liquor Store branch for pickup.
